The Valleyview nine is the most difficult course at the 27-hole Farmstead Golf & Country Club, which is located in northwest New Jersey approximately one hour from New York City. Small greens, tree-lined fairways, hilly terrain and out of bounds on seven of nine holes are among the reasons the Valleyview nine is a test. The Byron Phoebus design opened in 1979.

Crowded last Friday Sep 6 2013 PM

Tournament playing in between public outings made slow playing pace. Customers should be informed before selling tee times, so we can decide.

Course in fantastic shape for mid December. No leaves or branches anywhere, bunkers raked, rough was under control. Great pace of play as everyone out there wanted to finish before dark. Teed off at 12 and finished 3:45. Thanks to Scott and the staff for a very enjoyable round.

Staff behavior

I like playing this course specially lake and club and wanted to get a round in this fall despite the fact it is in a very remote corner of NJ and sits off of Route 15 which is peppered with speed traps. Two things they got to do better if they want people to hike there and play 1) the starter pushed everyone to Lake 9 first creating a very crowded and back to back play which was backed up. We did ask the starter to have us play Club 9 twice and he refused. They need to be flexible and better manage the traffic specially on the weekend rather than be very rigid. It took us over 5 hours to complete the round and on one of the par 5’s there were close to 16 people on the hole just waiting 2) a separate course ranger started - an extremely rude lady was standing in plain sight enforcing rules and interrupting the whole time warning people about small little things which was very disruptive. Very annoying and we had to go and talk to her as it was just running our focus. Finally she backed off and rode away. Really bad experience.
